THE FOSSIL STUDY ROCK &

THE LIVING FOSSIL TREES

The Rock a Resources Center for all K-12 to College Level Learning

Hopefully by the Fall of 2018 The Rock will be made part of Northeastern State University studies for teachers. This will give the teacher experience in the outdoor classroom setting. How to use all the resources in setting up an outdoor classroom.

We are working with the area schools to have The Rock an extension of the class room. A place where students can hunt minerals and fossils. Then will have a study sheet to incorporate Math, Science and English aligned with the state testing program. This sight can be used from the simplest math to combinatoric, hyperbolic geometry and alebraic topolopgy. The project will be up dated to meet STEM and STEAM requirement for the students.

Thanks to Dr. Molly Yunker of Oklahoma Geological Survey, University of Oklahoma,  for bestowing the  Raspberry Shake to Northeastern State University in the State of Oklahoma.
 T
he Raspberry Shake 4D gives people like you the ability to truly observe unseen vibrations that happen all around, as well as the big ones that really shake things up around the world. These Earth movements affect us all in some way or another, the more serious ones hitting the news with increasing frequency. These movements are no longer limited to just “natural” movements such as sinkholes, landslides and earthquakes. Human factors are becoming increasingly more apparent with quarry explosions, nuclear blast testing, deep well waste water injection and fracking, processes that have impacted many of our friends and relatives directly. Recently the Oklahoma Geological Survey acquired 100 Raspberry Shakes for this very reason!.
Hopefully there will a live video feed by the first of the year. This will enable any school to visually use the shake.

The first monarchs arrive at their winter home in Mexico each fall by the first of November. Two events are taking place in Mexico when the monarchs appear. One is a seasonal event and the other a cultural event and people connect the arrival of the monarchs with these events:

if you’d like to experience for yourself what it’s like to stand among millions of gentle butterflies, join a small-group tour of the butterfly sanctuaries in Mexico this winter. This rare habitat is set aside as the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to protect and conserve this extraordinary migration phenomenon, which you’ll get to witness up close on intimate adventures.

Like autumn leaves, monarch butterflies cluster by the hundreds of thousands on the branches of oyamel trees—heavy enough to weigh them down!

Oklahoma Friends of Monarchs on Face Book

This group is to promote Monarchs in the state of Oklahoma. Oklahoma plays an integral part in the lives of Monarchs, providing much needed habitat as a part of the flyway for the migrating Monarchs that come through in the spring and fall. Monarch populations can be found residing in Oklahoma throughout the summer months. The purpose of this group is to be supportive to those who are interested in providing habitat, or in bringing in Monarchs to raise. Hopefully, we will become a network of resources for seeds, plants, and sharing eggs/caterpillars within the group. All photos on this group should have something to do with Monarchs and or milkweed. Pictures of all phases of the life cycle of Monarchs are welcome, as are educational links. Plant sales within Oklahoma are permitted.
